Oklahoma and the Energy Transition - OGS Workshop 2022
The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) is hosting a workshop on the role of Oklahoma in the national energy transition. Since before statehood, Oklahoma has been one of the most consequential regions for energy production globally, and today its economy is still deeply connected to extractions of energy minerals. The workshop will explore opportunities and challenges specific to Oklahoma and the midcontinent region presented by the national mandate for an energy diverse, lower-carbon future.
The workshop will cover emerging opportunities in Oklahoma including carbon sequestration, geostorage, geothermal energy, and critical mineral exploration. Additionally, the workshop will also include lessons learned for managing produced water and navigating earthquake hazards in the last decade. Morning and afternoon session will be followed by an open panel discussion with the presenters.
Throughout the entire workshop, we will have relevant core on site with self-guided displays, as well as a student poster session.
When: Wednesday, November 16, 2022 - technical program, student poster session (see details below), and core viewing
Where: Moore Norman Technology Center - South Penn Campus. 13301 S Pennsylvania Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73170 (click to view map)
